Walt Disney World Build 2 New Timeshare Resorts.
The Florida-based theme park resort said that the as-yet-unnamed resort will open in 2022. It will have 900 hotel rooms, as well as villas for Disney’s timeshare program. The 27,000-acre tourist destination already has 36 resorts on its property, as well as four theme parks. This new project joins three other resort construction projects underway at Disney World.
Disney Parks and Resorts also announced a new development for Disney Vacation Club, it will be an entirely new resort near Epcot called Disney Riviera Resort and also unveiled a new skyway transportation system will connect the new resort to other areas on Walt Disney World property.
A Disney Resorts spokesperson said: “We’re thrilled to announce plans for a new Disney Vacation Club property called Disney Riviera Resort coming to Walt Disney World Resort. Our Vacation Club Members are among our most loyal fans, and we think that they will love what we have planned, especially the rooftop restaurant that will offer unbelievable views of nighttime spectaculars at both Epcot and Hollywood Studios.”
Estimated to open in fall 2019, this new resort experience is slated to be the 15th Disney Vacation Club property with approximately 300 units spread across a variety of accommodation types.
On July 17, Disney Vacation Club will open its 14th resort with the opening of Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, featuring 184 rustically elegant vacation accommodations including Deluxe Studios, one- and two-bedroom Villas, three-bedroom Grand Villas and unique waterfront cabins.
Ken Potrock, Senior Vice President & General Manager of Disney Vacation Club, said, “The opening of Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge in just a few days and the announcement of our next planned development, Disney Riviera Resort, demonstrate the incredible momentum underway at Disney Vacation Club. Our members tell us over and over again how much they love the outstanding accommodations and the value and flexibility of a Disney Vacation Club Membership, as well as the unique location to our growing and evolving theme parks and the exclusive member experiences and benefits they get from our Membership Extras program.”
Disney Vacation Club, a leader in vacation ownership, debuted in 1991 with a flexible, vacation points-based system rather than the traditional fixed-week timeshare model. Today, Disney Vacation Club has more than 220,000 member families, from all 50 states and approximately 100 countries.
Disney Vacation Club Members are able to choose from a variety of vacation destinations, including a stay at any Disney Vacation Club Resort or one of the thousands of other vacation options in destinations around the world. Plus, when purchasing directly from Disney, members can also enjoy the Disney Collection, which includes select Disney Resort hotels, Disney Cruise Line and guided vacations with Adventures by Disney, as well as the Concierge Collection, a portfolio of extraordinary hotels in sought-after destinations. With Disney Vacation Club properties located near the Disney theme parks in Florida and California, Members have easy access to all the attractions.
Disney Vacation Club has become immensely popular over the last few years and is a huge money maker for the company. So it is no wonder Disney is investing heavily in new timeshare properties. Members who buy at Disney resort, pay annual fees. Unlike other timeshares, this earns them DVC points which they can then spend at the resort. They also have a limit to their timeshare contracts and you choose how long you would like your contract to last for, rather than have a contract for life. DVC also offers heavily discounted tickets to their parks once you become a member and incredibly, due to the high demand, owners have reported to of sold their memberships and actually made a small profit. Could Disney be the only reputable timeshare offering on the market?
Before you enter into an agreement It is important to remember that purchasing a Timeshare should NEVER be viewed as a financial investment. Timeshare is an investment in lifestyle, in future holidays and family time together. In nearly all cases there is almost no resale value to a Timeshare. Timeshare membership can become a liability and not an asset.
